MERCY CORPS: A Mother's Strength

Antoinette participated in an innovative Mercy Corps cash-for-work program. Mercy Corps was the first organization to pilot cash-for-work programming, which enables people to earn life-sustaining income while working to get their own community back on its feet after a crisis.

“Antoinette had fled violence whilst heavily pregnant. I was so impressed by Antoinette's calm, kind air. She was living in the toughest circumstances but was remarkably positive. She was totally in love with her baby, Sarah, and it was a pleasure to photograph her holding the baby with this surprisingly serene look on her face.” -Oliva Acland
